NFU plea for motorists to be patient
THE NFU is urging motorists to be patient when driving behind slow-moving farm machinery.
An NFU spokesman said: “Harvest only happens once a year, so please be patient if you find you are driving behind a tractor, combine harvester or cultivator.
“Farmers are working around the clock to deliver your daily bread and to produce food for livestock. Straight after harvest we need to move equipment that will be used to till the land and sow crops for the coming year too.
“It’s a question of give and take on the roads right now. The NFU is also reminding members to check their mirrors frequently and to pull over if they see a queue building up behind them.”
The NFU produces a business guide for its members on harvest machinery movements.
